Massive Piracy Raids in Germany

In what was described as the world's largest operation against movie and video games piracy, German authorities this week raided more than 750 locations across the country, seizing 19 servers, 40,000 video discs and more than 200 personal computers. Among the German-language dubs swept up by the a raiders were The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King and Cheaper by the Dozen. More than 15 persons were "detained" for questioning. The action was hailed by the MPAA, which called it "a major blow against piracy in Germany."
